Most women have flirted with the idea of menswear. Most women have stolen their other half’s jumper or t-shirt at some point. If Katharine Hepburn can rock a Brooks Brothers shirt, then what’s stopping you from wandering into the menswear section of your favourite store and shopping without boundaries. (Except a budget…)
We look at the best of menswear and how you can style it. So, if you’re feeling adventurous, ditch the label and buy what you like simply because you like it.
Gucci has been exploring playful colours and cartoonish prints in its AW18 Men’s collection. Pair with a white denim skirt or a white, cropped wide-legged jean to give focus to the bright millennial colour of the jumper, but clash with a bold orange trainer to play into the cartoon elements.
Menswear has becoming increasingly daring when it comes to patterns and prints. This wild print shirt works beyond gender, with its cut giving a boxy silhouette to a slender frame. Tuck the shirt into a navy skirt and add a pair of white trainers to strike the perfect balance of smart casual. Chuck on a pair of leopard print heels to match the shirt – if you’re feeling a little more wild.
A man’s blazer, slipped on over a dress at the end of a chilly night always looks cute – so why wait around to borrow one? Shop a smaller size in the menswear section, and roll up the sleeves to add a little shape. Add a satin camisole with lace for a feminine touch, and keep the tones neutral to accentuate the pattern of the blazer.
A 90s Number
An over-sized tee is perhaps the comfiest item of clothing you could own. Cinch your waist with high-waisted denim shorts or jeans (weather dependent) – add boots and cat eye sunglasses to complete the vintage 90s look. Perfect for festivals, picnic parties and pretty much all summer occasions.
